Angus Bain Kennedy, Sheriff Court papers p01

Warrant of Commitment by George Douglas, Sheriff Substitute of Inverness-shire, dated 23 March, 1754. This is one of several records in the Highland Council Archive concerning Angus Bain Kennedy, a former piper living in Pitmaglaster, Glengarry. 'Bain', sometimes written 'Bàn', was often used as part of a name and means 'fair', both in the sense of 'blond' and 'attractive'. Here, we find him in Fort Augustus, accused of the theft of livestock from Duncan Bain Errack, alias Fraser in Stratherrick, some years previously. He is to be taken to Inverness Tolbooth to stand trial
